Injury Prevention – Mark E. Gittins. D.O. 


Often we’re asked about “what are things that we can do to stay out of your office as we go through our elder years or we’re about ready to retire and start traveling?” 

First of all, stay active. Find an exercise program, find a dance program, find something that you like to do, and do it 4 or 5, 6 times a week.

If you do have a weight challenge, get that under control. Talk to your family doctor, and get your weight health as good as you can get it. Generalized stretching and balance training programs are often very helpful in preventing falls. You prevent falls, you’re not coming to the emergency room to see us.
